What Charges Will Alec Baldwin Face?
"Every day there's new reports about how guilty Alec is and now what should happen to him and there's so many conflicting opinions. Generally people in Hollywood don't want to blame him. They're trying to blame. And of course, a large part of the blame falls with Hannah Gutierrez read, the armorer and Dave holz, the first AD, who now we found out has made other mistakes on previous movies was fired from a movie for similar type of bullshit with guns. And now we also found out that Hannah read Gutierrez and I knew this from just looking at her face and not knowing anything but who is this ghoulish girl, this new type of young woman with all the tats and piercings, a chunky girl who calls herself a former model, get the fuck. You know, if you pose for one in picture that's a modeling photographer, you got a model. Show me the box you're on. Show me the catalog you're in. Stop with this model. And the goddamn newspapers pull her a former model. Wouldn't she do model socks over the radio? She's a big pudge. She's not a model. And she's not pretty for Christ's sake. Anyhow, Nicolas Cage on the last movie she worked on her first movie, screamed at her because she had done and gone off right near his ear while he was preparing for a scene and he was so pissed off he walked off set and he went to the people who run the movie and said, she's got to go. You've got to get rid of her. Someone's going to die here. He was out of his mind, man. So that's why this girl did the podcast all kind of nervous. Well, I was nervous about it because my first time and yeah, honey, it's your last time too. You're not working ever again in the movies. You're done. You're done. So with that, my legal source told me Alec Baldwin shouldn't escape any consequences, he has to be tried for involuntary manslaughter. That's what he feels. Because he says his actions fit the New Mexico statute law definition for involuntary manslaughter, engaging in a lawful but dangerous act without exercising due caution and circumspection. It's a fourth degree felony, punishable by up to 18 months in prison finds up to 5 grand. That's nothing considering what he's about to face civilly. It's going to be horrifying. But my source like me still believes Baldwin might escape criminal charges. I mean, I think the bulk of the charges will fall on the armor and the first AD, but a civil liability, Baldwin could get hit pretty hard for negligence on a wrongful death action. It's going to cost him dearly. I don't know how they're going to put their lives back together and then again, him and hilaria, it's going to be a while.
The Rapid Ascension of Steven Kwan
"Terry, Pluto, I was telling some friends who are Red Sox fans sadly this weekend who were houseguests that I was talking to you today, and that I've been following Steve kwon because your wife, Roberta, who does ministry with you, started loving on Steve Kwan early and I think Roberta is as sharp as you are as observer. I was reminded when my dying grandfather was asking me about Richie scheinblum in 1968. And Steve Kwan is that guy. He's everybody's Bronx Burnett come to life. I mean, it's an amazing story. It really is. And on top of it, I'm 5 foot 9 and I could maybe look down on him a little bit. He might be just as tall as me because he has hair. And this is a guy that was surprised to be recruited out of Oregon state. He was drafted in the 5th round by Cleveland. He was surprised he thought he was going to fence around. He was just kind of a small spark, what kind of player that a lot of us maybe who were older grew up watching and that is not the type of player that base a like. Turns around you said close to 300 is the carbon excellent left Fielder. Big fan favorite fans love it when a small guy is good because they feel it looks like a normal person. And he has been just terrific in this series on top of that. Well,

"sox" Discussed on Red Sox Beat
"The Red Sox are 14 and 5 when they're starting picture throws at least 6 innings winning each of the last 8 such games in 13 of their last 14. Now, I don't know if in those how many in those 19 games there are 14 and 5 record. Our quality starts, meaning 6 innings and three runs allowed. Well, so just what stands out to me there is when the starter goes deeper into game, they're better. And again, I don't know if we have other numbers branching off of that, but what I would be interested in is when the starter doesn't go 6 innings. But still leaves with a lead, what is their record? I don't think it's good. And that's my point. You need to do everything to shield this bullpen in high school. I do not let them see the light a day. More to the point, Alex. You need to do more to shield the middle part or the long end of the bullpen. In 6th inning part of the bullpen and maybe even the 7th. But certainly you don't want to be if you're Alex Corey, you're doing everything possible to avoid going to your bullpen in the 5th and 6th innings. And I think a lot of managers are doing that, but especially a guy like Alex Cora, who really has some very good arms at the back end, but getting there has proved problematic. And when the Red Sox struggled with a couple of exceptions, the bullpen has really struggled in those medium innings, holding the game where it is when the start it left. Right. And so that's where, again, putting chrysal in the rotation doesn't, it's counterproductive in two ways. One, when he starts, you're going to need to rely more on the middle of the bullpen. In two, if he's in the bullpen, he becomes the guy. You talk about, you know, the 5th 6th, 7th inning, kind of being the danger zone, where you go from, I mean, whoever they're throwing out there now, Ryan brazier, Austin, Austin, Davis has been good. But you get my point. Yes. These names, you go from those guys to Chris sale in those innings. And it's an upgrade. So that's why I think it just makes more sense to go that way.

"Bet online, where the game starts. All right, back with Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub as we wrap up here, this Red Sox beat episode. I want to talk about the starting pitching and what has impressed you about the starting pitching of late Nathan Navalny coming up absolutely huge the other night on Wednesday night in another one nothing red's Red Sox win over the angels. There are second one nothing victory in three nights over the angels. What has stood out to you about their starting pitching? Oh, it's got to be Michael waka and Navalny was good the other night, certainly, but Michael walker throwing that complete game shut out. He's got his ERA down under two now. To see him kind of throw it back like this. If you want to go back to what we started the show with write the Celtics and Red Sox comparisons, it's Al Horford ish. He hasn't he hasn't had a season. His all star season was in 2015. When he was 23 years old, he's now 30. 7 years later, and he's having the best seasons. That guys don't normally have like 6 bump seasons and then come bounce, come back and bounce back like the way he has. So I think to get the boost from him, they'd be in a real scary place. If he wasn't given them what he's giving them, you know, Nathan of Aldi, I think, has been good at times, but he's been kind of in and out. Garrett whitlock experiment. Which is something I campaigned for has been hit and miss. Tater house, spinning out of the rotation, all of that. It really feels like Michael walk has been their constant. But anybody, I don't even know if hanging bloom had that coming into the season, but it's been a massive list. It's only 30, Alex. He's 30 years old. This is not a fail. Well, I shouldn't say that. This isn't Rick hill is what I meant. This is not rich hill. This isn't somebody on the back end of his career. He's in what's supposed to be the prime of his career. Like yes, but what I would push back on that a little bit and I don't entirely disagree, but with pitchers, I almost look at it more in years and innings than I do in age because it's wear and tear on the arm. That's ultimately what it is, right? Right. He's thrown he's been pitching since 2013 regularly in the majors outside of 2020, which was like the.

"I know you've got to be off here in a little bit. But he's a career two 92 hitter. He's got 78 homers in, let's see, three plus years. This is his fourth major league season. He's got 78 bombs. And I don't have his extended OPS and OVP and all of that. And you bring that up with Devers, let's do that. You're enjoying the NBA Finals, aren't you? The 2 a.m., yeah. I'm good. This is great. This is great radio right here, by the way. All right. It's a podcast, dude. It's not radio. I have it here. You want the I got the career. Two 85. Okay. His numbers are actually what he's played two seasons longer. Than Al Perez has. But if you take from 2019, Alvarez's first year, to now, it works out that raffi has better hitting average, better numbers across the board. His average is actually brought down by his second year 2018 actually when he had Red Sox. 108 games. And won the World Series. He hit only two 40. And that year he had 21 home runs and struck out a 121 times. But he struck out 44 times so far through a third of the year, so that's about a 120 strikeouts. He's on pace for that. But I just think, you know, the Alvarez comp is interesting. I just look at José Ramírez as someone the Red Sox C Rafael Devers maintaining his numbers at a pace of, if you follow my drift. Sure, yeah, but again, that's why the age thing is weird to me because I think they see Devers in four years as Ramirez. And I think, you know, when Ramirez gets his deal, there's going to be unless it's a really short term deal. That's going to be based on his decline. His regression is going to be factored into that deal. I think it doesn't sound like a large gap right 29 years old versus whatever Devers is 25, 26, but I mean, those years right there, age 25 to 29 season. That's the peak..

"Hey everybody, it is drags Mike petroleum back with another episode of the Red Sox beat on the CL and S media network. I'm joined again by Alex bartha 98 5 the sports sub follow him on Twitter at real Alex barth all one word. He is doing sensational work and late work burning the midnight oil for 98 5 covering the NBA Finals of which as we record this on Thursday. They Celtics lead two games to one. And Alex, the last time we spoke last week, we said we talked a good bit about in the Red Sox beat podcast about, is there any analogy or comparison to be made between what the Celtics were able to do mid season and what the Red Sox might be able to do? Well, lo and behold, since we last talked, guess what? The Red Sox haven't lost. 7 straight wins. They won the series finale against the Cincinnati reds 7 to one. And then we said, and I think rightly so that this West Coast swing of ten games against Oakland, the angels and Mariners would go a long way toward determining how they approach the all star break, the trade deadline and going forward as either a buyer or seller. Given the fact that they've won the first 6 games on the road swing, I'd say they're going to be buyers. I mean, they are it's tough because through all of this, they're actually one game further back in the a at least than they were when they started. I don't think that matters. I think they're closer in the playoffs though. They are, I just, I don't know that you can blow it all up, right? I don't know that you can make that home run trade that a team like the Yankees can make or I would even say a team like, you know, Chicago who has it worse record, but it's just four games back in that division and what's kind of a wild division. I think you do need to be cognizant of this future, especially given the current roster composition. Can you trade Jeter downs if you're going to let zander bogarts walk out the door? Can you move like, you know, I'm talking about blockbuster. Can you move Tristan Costas if, you know, Raphael beverage is going to move on because costs can play some third base. Can you move some of these pictures if you know of all these moving on next year? And I believe Michael, 'cause only on a one year deal, right? It's still feels like those are great questions. That's by the way. Thank you. You're welcome. Does heim bloom have an eye on the next two to three years after this year and not just when this year? Because perhaps some of those moves you're talking about Alex, a great point you're making is that we may have to sacrifice some of what would benefit the 2022 Red Sox for what will benefit the Red Sox 2023 and moving forward. Like what this team really needs is pitching. I know the pitching has been great the last couple of days in the lineup spin the issue, but big picture when it all evens out. Things regress to the means. They could use help. Helping the starting rotation could help their bullpen too. There's more than.

"Hey everybody, it is drags Mike petrolia once again coming at you on the ceiling media network with another episode of Red Sox beat. This week, Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub is back citgo sign in all baseball cap on, ready to talk a little Trevor story joining the Boston Red Sox this week. I'm bloom, Alex. Finally made the big splash Red Sox fans were hoping for in terms of signing a free agent who could really help the Red Sox offensively right handed bat, of course. He fills a need on the infield, though it's not as natural position. He's never played second base, but we're going to find out if he can play second base with the Boston Red Sox as Xander Bogart's stays at home at shortstop. So Trevor's story signs 6 years, a $140 million. That's $22.5 million AAV. And there is a 7th year option that kicks in if the Red Sox choose to do so by the fourth year of his contract, they pick up the option and it extends to 7 years and a $160 million, but Trevor's story on board with Boston Red Sox. I like the deal. How about you? Yeah, I really do. I like it from a number of different angles. I like the short term impact. I like the long-term impact, but I thought the contract itself was very team friendly. You mentioned the money compared to what some of these other guys got. You look at Carlos Correa. So this is the move Red Sox fans have been waiting for. I think they've been waiting for since Mookie betts got traded, right? Was all right, you're going to dip back below the CBT. You're going to reset that penalty and then come back out swinging and we were all waiting for the swing and here it is. So it was good to see it. It seemed like it wasn't going to happen for a little bit there. Guys were flying off the board left and right and there were only a couple of those marquee free agents left, but whether you assign a march 1st or march 20th, the guy is still going to be in the lineup opening day, so it all worked out..

"And I think, look, here's the thing about it. People who say it's just going to be Tampa Bay north or insane, because first of all, if you can get the system working like Tampa Bay has and all of a sudden here comes wonder Franco and all these young players and pitchers who you've never heard of, who are great. Sign me up for that. But guess what the Red Sox are going to do that the rays will never do. They're going to also spend enormous amounts of cash. So in modern baseball, you look at the Astros. You look at the Dodgers. These teams have waves of young prospects that not only can come up and help you the big league level. But that's the reason the Dodgers were able to trade for Max Scherzer and trade Turner. And all these teams are able to manipulate and make moves because they've got depth in the minor league system. It's the only sustainable way to win. The Red Sox will keep their superstars around like Devers and bogarts. They will build from within. They might have another wave of superstars with guys named Tristan casas and some others and Nick York. And Marcelo Meyer, these guys are coming, and then you still have the checkbook and the financial ability and heft to go out and make the big moves. So to have both puts you in an unbelievable position of strength. You brought up Daniel Bard. And you know where I'm going to go with this? Let's hear it. Matt Barnes. And obviously, he did not have the second half that the Red Sox Alex core made reference to this, of course, that they still believe he is a big part of their plans. But it was precipitous. I mean, obviously, he missed the two weeks or two, two and a half weeks with COVID. But the fall off was precipitous, I believe the stat was he didn't have save after August 5th. And it just, there was no production and he couldn't find the plate, and it was that painful at times to watch him on the mound trying to find command. For a will. What do you think the problem was? And do they have deep down deep belief that he'll bounce back in 2022? I love a good two parter, Mike. I can't look in their souls, but I will tell you that they have to be concerned. And they are a little bit with Matt. He's been so overworked. I think maybe four or 5 times he's had more than 65 appearances in seasons, and it sure looked like he really hit a wall this season. And maybe that's because of the shortened COVID year last season and now another big workload. The one thing that you kind of hold your breath and hope on is that the change in the rules in big league baseball is not the reason that that Barnes kind of fell off the clip. Because if you look at the before and after when big league baseball really started to crack down, it's a troubling sort of split. Look, I don't think anybody's writing Matt Barnes off at all. He's had such a pedigree. He was just an unbelievable all star caliber reliever. I think big league baseball is going to try some new prototypes of baseball's coming up here that are already like pre tacky. And we'll see how that goes into spring training next year. Maybe that helps Barnes with fastball command and have that wicked curveball combo..

A roller coaster ride to say the very least after games two and three went in the Red Sox way and unprecedented fashion. Games three, four, sorry, games four, 5 and 6, the tables were turned. I thought will the turning point of the series was a game tying home run by Jose Altuve in game four when the Red Sox were up two one. Yeah, I think it's hard to make that argument against that migrate to be with you again. Thank you. Roller coaster is the perfect word for this season in so many ways. I mean, we're just all sort of taking a deep breath and looking back at it and I think it, you know, it extends beyond just the last four or 5 days when the Red Sox did have a real opportunity to get to the World Series. And it's crazy that we're not at Fenway Park tonight welcoming the Atlanta Braves. That would have been pretty wild culmination to just an insane 2021 season. But, you know, I think that the Astros on paper is certainly a better team than the Red Sox are. The stock's offense got hot for a couple of games. And without Lance mccullers, I thought the Red Sox had a really good chance. And you make the right point, which is you can easily say that the Red Sox could have swept the series in game one you got Tanner hulk on the mound with the two run lead. He gives up a Homer to about two of it and then in game four the same story of carrot winlock. And Garrett whitlock was the Red Sox best pitcher this year other than native Aldi. And so question. It's hard to argue with the setup that they had. And by the way, you know, I'm sure we'll talk about I'll explore in this podcast, but it's a marvel that he was able to navigate the Red Sox to that spot. To have them in a situation in those games with their best guys on the mound with a lead. And sometimes it just doesn't work out. And Altuve and Correa are two of the great all time playoff performers and they got the Red Sox in those couple of moments. So, you know, it stings to not keep going, but what a year it was for the Red Sox and by almost any measure they exceeded expectations and took us all on a wonderful ride. Now, you bring up will Fleming, Alex Cora, I think he is certainly in the conversation for American League manager of the year. I don't think there's any doubt about that considering where the experts had picked this team..

"You have to pass certain milestones before you are permitted back on the roster. Correct? Yeah, and it's different for vaccinated and unvaccinated players. So Nick pavetta came back for Sunday start, and he hadn't been out for the full ten days, but he had been vaccinated. So if you're unvaccinated, if you are vaccinated, you are a non symptomatic, you can come back earlier. Chris sale, they haven't said anything, but typically when they don't say anything that means they're unvaccinated. So he will have to wait at least the full ten days and then he'll still have to go through testing and symptom testing and all that. So I can't really speak too much to the concussion protocols to be honest. But it is sort of a convoluted situation. Well, I mean, I guess the reason I bring that up is, you know, when you're dealing with an actual old fashioned injury, there are things you can do to maybe get yourself through that injury, maybe shorten the amount of time that you are in rehab and get back sooner, right? I mean, a lot of players have done that in the past. And that's no shock. But with this, there are certainly there's the seriousness of the virus itself. There's the pandemic. And there's really the concern, I think, in a city like Boston and in an organization like the Red Sox that has hit been hit particularly hard by COVID-19. They don't want to mess around and they don't want to take any shortcuts. That's I guess the point I was making. No, yeah. I mean, it makes sense. And it's not, I mean, a normal injury, it's really between the training staff, the player and the team on when they're coming back and when you have something like COVID-19 there are federal regulations there, obviously rules that you have to pass. So yeah, I mean, that's definitely a different situation. Speaking with Matt Collins, the editor of over the monster dot com, brought to you by SB nation. It's that time of year again and all eyes are now turning to.

I always try to keep track of those guys. So I will definitely keep an eye out for that. And it would be nice if the Red Sox never got one. I mean, Ed kimbrell, eat through pretty hard, but. And they could have had kimberle again, but that's another story for another podcast. How are you doing otherwise? I'm good. I'm good. I'm just, you know, kind of catching up for NFL season. Obviously, great, great weekend of college football, hard not to love that. So yeah, it was a great, by the way, hunter grain, yes, is the right hander. I don't know what I was. But he can throw a smooth, one O one, a very smooth one O one. He is a tremendous picture. Yeah. You like that Florida state Notre-Dame game. I thought of you, Alex. I don't know why I did. I didn't like it because, well, first of all, who likes Notre-Dame? And second of all, I was so excited for McKenzie Milton to make his comeback. Great story, right? I think great quarterback. I think a guy who if he doesn't suffer that injury is probably in the league right now. But he doesn't get the start. They put him in late in the game and then they blow it for him. It just didn't sit right with me. I wanted them to win that game for him so bad. Hopefully he becomes the startup. Look, at the other kid, Jordan something, I forget his last name. He wasn't awful. He threw a couple of picks, but some of them I think two of those were on the receiver more nim. He made some nifty plays, but I just, I want to watch McKenzie milling again, man. He was so good and it's just so unfortunate what happened to him. I think the doctor, they showed a quote from the doctor last night about his surgery like nothing like that had ever been done before. They weren't sure they were going to save his leg. And now he's out here playing D one football going toe to toe with the 9th ranking team in the country. I wanted it. I wanted that ending. Hopefully we get another shot at it. Maybe Clemson, down the road, I don't know, but hopefully we get another shot at it later this year. So I want to thank everybody for downloading today's podcast.

"Hey everybody, it's drags and this week on Red Sox beat. I welcome back good friend and old colleague, Alex barth of 98 5, the sports hub, you can of course follow him on Twitter at real Alex barth today. We are going to be talking about the resilient Red Sox. They have overcome quite a lot in the past 7 days since we last spoke Alex the COVID pandemic that is really hit them hard. The injured list, they've had no fewer than 11 players in the last ten days placed on COVID. IL. And what's to me, most significant about that, of those players, 5 have been pictures, still, they managed to go on a four game winning streak. The day after Xander Bogart's their best player arguably was pulled off the field in the second inning by Alex Quora. Look, say what you will about the Red Sox slumping after the all star break and for a good portion of August. But this team and the last week has shown me something. Yeah, they have. And when I was on with you, whatever was last week, right? We were talking about what do they need to do to win the division? I said, just they got to at least split with Tampa and then they got to win every series from there on out. They split with Tampa. They won their first series. So they're doing what they need to do right now and all things considered everything they're going through. It's pretty darn impressive. They had something called a cut or Crawford on the mound. Yes, they did win the game, but you know he gave enough innings where they didn't have to drain the bullpen. They still won the series that in itself felt like sort of a win for them. Just given the situation they're in right now. So it does feel like they're turning the corner. Whatever August was it was. That was a mess. The Red Sox, I actually looked this up. I kind of stumbled on this by accident. The Red Sox in years two zero X one. So 20 blank one. Always collapsed late in season. 2001, they were like, 20% was right around 60% through July, August and September. It was barely found is when I will remind you, that's when Joe Kerrigan took over and was giving hitting advice to people like Troy O'Leary..

"Baseball games back in MLB 2021, especially if you get to October you need as many guys, you can kind of in that boat phone well and you need to run up against a team that is not going to be as particular when they're swinging at pitches. Meaning you need to face teams that are going going to be more aggressive because I found in watching these games that dead When you have hard throwers out of the bullpen, if you run up against the line up that it's going to take pictures and has no problem hitting with two strikes. Those are the teams that usually have success, waiting out and throwers in the bullpen. Yeah, absolutely. And that's one of the good things about the Red Sox offense, when they're going. Well, is that, you know, they can beat good teams. They can be good, pitching staffs. And you know, these are actually laborers. They're just even have, they're going to have to get back to pounding. The strike zone, kind of trusting the stuff. I've seen a lot of nibbling going on lately and Barnes just has to get back to where he was early. And when he was just kind of go after guys, and ladies looked kind of more like the old pre 2021 Matt Barnes where he's nibbling around and tracks, you know, he's got a great curveball. But God, you got a ninety-six ninety-seven, my yes, humans the basketball. Yeah, and it had to be aggressive especially if it drives me crazy. Try guys are nibbling at the bottom of the order and I've seen birth. Sounds like walking number nine, enter cuz he's throwing too many curveballs. When you have like a, you know, the the top of the order coming up, just don't do that. Don't slow their baths down, you know, just he involved in the meat of the order. Just just use your fast football. And I think that's with Barnes need to do is he just needs to get back to being aggressive and trusting that, that could fast-forward, he has, how does a pitching rotation lineup for this week with the Yankees? I haven't taken. Yeah, they're going to go the, it's listed to the TV only because they're going out. And, and of all the in the first in a doubleheader, what they hadn't for some reason, they haven't disclosed, which order they're going to be in yet. So it's going to be how kind of all the in some order against, you know, then they're going to go with pivetta in the Wednesday game in New York. Then you have sailed back out there Friday against Texas and Iran Saturday. So it shapes have to be a pretty good week for the Red Sox. Pitching wise at these guys can kind of do what they should do. I think it's going to be really exciting to age. Enter how pitch in Yankee Stadium and of all the it's just been an absolute Yankee killer track since since he joined the Red Sox. I mean he just every time he pitches against them pretty much a 01 run. So I think there is a good shape to at the very least split that double-headed on Tuesday, which is what they need to do. They don't need to sweep and they just need to split it and then hopefully when they came on on Wednesday get out of there and win two out of three months. Yeah. TBD against Gil and then TBD against Montgomery in The nightcap on Tuesday. And then Wednesday, Nick pivetta goes off keys are still TBD on that..

"2018 where you had, you know, you had Steve Pearce and Mitch Moreland and Eduardo Nunez and bra off. All that being concerned, you had a bunch of guys, you were sort of entertaining. He likes that kind of managing. He likes having a virtual roster where he can everyone on the roster, sort of has a purpose and I think that's what you have right now with our tracers can too much. Franchy Cordero. Yeah. Well, I mean, why wouldn't Gonzales who was just designated for assignment too? Many automatic outs in this lineup. And now you have now you're going to frost a couple of guys. I think you can contribute and it's just going to be a much better lineup. I think for for Alex, for it, to be able to manage a maneuver. That being said, Ian, this team was still very successful in the first half. Even with all of those question marks in the lineup. I mean, you have to understand. I think if you're a Red Sox fan, that Alex Cora was a big part of the reason why with the starting rotation pretty much. Huge question, mark with a lot of Band-Aids in that rotation to start the season and some of the bench pieces were line up pieces. Even as you mentioned really big time question box in the bottom for the order. They still were the second or third best team in baseball for most of the first half of the year. Yeah. The team was playing with a lot of fire and for much of the year. They led the league in a comeback wins. Tampa Bay has since passed them in that category. But yeah, he you know, he did a great job that first. That's first three. But really April May June the scene was excellent that really position down to have the stretch run that they're going to have right now. We're you know, looks like it's going to be playing meaningful baseball the entire season and Cora was really pushing all the right buttons early with dispatch team and it just got to a point..

"BetOnline, your online Sportsbook experts back with Ian, Brown of mlb.com covering the red socks off. All right, there was another significant piece that made its debut in the Red Sox roster. You alluded to him earlier, Kyle schwarber, he made his debut on Friday, but on Sunday, he was very impressive in the 622. Win over the Orioles Kyle schwarber 244 with a run scored and two doubles doubled, the right field in the sixth inning and off the left-field month. On the 7th is first, two hits with the red socks. Look, I don't think anybody expecting him to like the world on fire, but he is a left-handed bat that can provide some depth and some options for Alex Cora. He's not going to be, I don't think your answer at first base. I think Travis Shaw who was picked up off waivers on Sunday, might be more the case, you would log. To that, but what do you think of Kyle schwarber in his debut with the Red Sox? He and yeah, cash wherever just gives this team a greater path. Even when he doesn't get his he just he works the count. He's more patient than a lot of other strikes and you know, he's just, you know, the double to write the fact that he hit a double, the base, the wall, and right. And then just took a nice easy swing lazy flyball off the master, you know, you know, try for a left-handed hitter, he's able to do that. Able to use that wall, becomes a really dangerous hitter at Fenway Park and defensively like didn't get this guy for years, but they're going to figure that out is the first couple of games. He's going to DH for most of this week cuz they just want to keep his legs under be coming back from that that may trigger quad injury he had. And yeah, like you said, you know, they talked to first base when they first got him. I don't know if they didn't like what they see it on the work out or they just said, you know, he dead. My groin strain while he was recovering from the hamstring. So maybe they just don't want to put too much on his legs right away. But I think you're going to see him mostly at the age. Maybe a little bit in left field and Jamie Martini going to play more left-field than what JT's. Not terrible out there, you know, in left field, he I would agree with that. I mean, embarrasses himself. He doesn't have a longer range in the world. And that's where you don't need the range left field at Fenway Park. Yeah. So I think the Red Sox are going to sacrifice the little defense down the stretch and hopes of having a real deep offense here. So what you're going to see, how long as you can see JD and we're kind of rotating between, DH and left field. This is going to push, Alex, Verdugo, mainly the center. I think maybe right feel the time from when Hunter Renfrow, sits out against the tough righty and you know, Jared Duran, I think he could be the odd man out here, at least in the everyday line. He didn't play Sunday against the writing, that was sort of birth. They had four do go and Center and they had, you know, JD and Shore birthday JD and left and swore versification. I think that's where you're going to see more of a Shah. Who? Yeah, I think that in a lot of people, look at the page 191 average and say, oh yeah, here's another one ninety hitter for the Red Sox play at first base..

"You know, for, for all of the troubles that the Red Sox have been going through in the previous, what eleven games too, and 9 in those eleven games, or I believe that's what it was off. They needed the Orioles in the absolute worst way to come into town. I mean, they're baseball's worst team. They they look like they did back in 2018 and 2019 off when they were challenging. The sixty-two Mets for the most losses in baseball history. Real quick aside here. And what's happened with the Orioles. Why why have they plummeted back to baps? Yeah. I mean, I think they're just they're just taking right now tracks. I mean, they have they have a couple of players to work with. They have Mancini who's a really good plan of great story. One of the best stories in a season, coming back from from colon cancer and Cedric Mullins, a real nice player. And you know, the big, the big, the big Prospect mountcastle, but he's hurt dead. That's a big that's a big loss right there. So they're just a team that, you know, they're building it back up. I think that, you know, we'll see what they do. Then. They're not going to, they're not going to stay this bad. I think they, they need their conscious of what they're doing, and kind of Stack, a good draft pick, but the Red Sox didn't need this kind of opponent and tries. Once in the Red Sox, didn't get enough credit for is, for about a month and half a year playing nothing. But playoff-caliber opponents every day. And I think that has something to do with, you know, they, they handle that stretch very well for about the first. They got tired. I think men in fatigue took over. Yeah. Go ahead over the last eleven games. Yeah, I think for the first month or so they handled that stretch grade and they, they pulled out a couple, you know, quite a few games in the late Innings and they are feeling good. And yeah, I think you've hit that wall that, you know, some teams hit that in August..

"Covering all things Red Sox. You can follow him on Twitter wage at e. N m Browne. That's i a n m b. R o w. N e. How are you bud? I'm great tracks. How you doing? Good to hear this bill. Talk to you again. It's been a long time. You were the first guests on my iteration of the Red Sox, beat podcast, and I do appreciate it way back. When a lot has changed for the Red Sox since we last spoke, most prominently the return of their race. Chris Sale on Saturday, in the 16 to, to romp the Red Sox offense, took a lot of the pressure off off Chris Sale. Number 41, making it pretty easy for him. But still sale looked very sharp five innings, six hits and I don't know about you. He allowed two runs in the five innings, but the most impactful. Something about Saturday, the eight strikeouts and no walks that to me, tells me that he had really good control and command of all of his pictures. Yeah. It was really encouraging him to come in and after not pitching in a major league game for two years and pitched with with that kind of control. And you know, everybody else was was kept, being was kind of being patient bit and wondering how he would be. When he when he first got back and say I was like man this isn't just I'm not just going to ease into this. This is kind of, this is Go Time, so he's been getting ready for this but you know, you know, his work ethic, nobody works harder, nobody's more determined. And you know, he just, he looks better to, he got into great shape, he put on a little pigs, believe it or not. I put on a little bit of weight, you know, during this will it stay here will stay. That's what I wonder where the guy with the physique and a metabolism like Chris Sale, you know, he puts Wait on and hopefully in the right places and in the right ways, but the idea is so that he has more endurance, more strength toward the end of the season. Now, fortunately for him, his Seasons, not going to be very long. This is really for him. Like, what twenty twenty was for most of Major League, Baseball, a Sprint. So it's a Sprint to the Finish. Is that really the mentality? He's taken. Yeah, I think so. I think home and, and look, this is huge for the Red Sox to have him back at completely changes. The complexion and a team, you know, you look at yesterday and water Rodriguez, right? Pictures are great game and now suddenly, he's the number two starter and he looks a whole lot better. And then, number two. Slapping. This is a one, Nathan eovaldi. Looks a lot better is a free than he does is a two and then you have Tanner how they're young exciting prospect. I'm just going to pitch one of the games against the Yankees and the doubleheader. He, you know, he's, he is Nick pivetta and prevent us has some great moments this year. I saw a couple really bad per month..

"The most doesn't have enough that and right, I don't I don't know that there's enough that he can do but, you know, You mentioned this was going to be a defining stretch. It was almost exciting because it felt like the way Cora had the team going in it. Not just the way that he was playing. It was a specific feeling of the way. Alex Cora had them going that this was the kind of stretch that they were going to grab the opportunity and put this thing away. Right. You know right back to that Series against the Yankees out of the All-Star break data chance to bury the Yankees that weekend off, he's probably don't get Rizzo, they probably don't get Gallo. If they get swept that weekend, instead they opened the door part of me in a bizarre type of fashion wonders if home bloomed thinks that their hot start for the season did them a disservice because he had a charge from Red Sox ownership from Sam Kennedy from everybody at the top of the organization don't blow up what you what you are building in the farm system. We have too many prospects that we believe are going to be legit and we don't want you trading those chips away like David Dombrowski would just to make money. One more run at a World Series. We want to have something sustainable over the course of many, many years. And, you know, that is the model that they chose to build with Hime Bloom. That's odd. That was his charge when he was hired a couple of years ago and I don't think that's going to change. And that's why you didn't see him go out and make a big push at the MLB deadline. But isn't there a happy medium isn't there somewhere between David? And Brian said, he would tell you they did tax. They would, they would tell you that they tried to do that. You know, going out and getting getting Kyle, schwarber's. The problem with Kyle schwarber, we should address this right now before we get too far along Jen. McCaffrey reported it in the athletic on Monday. Some of the other people have it out there as well. Kyle schwarber had a setback on Sunday. He came up with a sore left groin, to go along with his tight, right hamstring. So that's kind of a double whammy wage. Considered quote unquote. A minor setback. We'll see. Just how minor it is. And when we could expect to see Kyle schwarber who hasn't played since July 2nd, when can we expect him to return? You know that tempered a little bit, the news, the good news of crisil who was expected to make the start this Saturday at Fenway against Baltimore. So here's my thing with shorter and the deadline, right? I think even if you want to kind of hold together and you think you have something built, you don't know. You just don't know. Xander, Bogaerts has an opt-out in his contract. Coming up, JD Martinez is on the wrong side of 30000, you're going to have to pay Rafael Devers soon. You don't know, I mean, Chris Sale. This could be it. He may have one year left in his arms 32, Alex, I mean, and he's throwing and by all indications, he's throwing his dog L, as he ever has physically, we'll see how that translates into games but I would expect him to come back. Pretty doggone strong from this. I Tommy, right? It's more, I think he'll come back, strong initial. More of a durability thing. You know, my.

"Birth. Together as they go pro, does Kyle schwarber. Make the play Bobby dalbec made in the eighth inning, Sunday night at Tampa Bay? I do not think he does. I mean, Beck, is that a struggle at the plate? That is well documented and we know all know that he is pretty much hit or miss all or nothing at the plate. If you're talking Bobby dalbec but the play made it first base package on the chopper, the spinning cue ball, shot down to Rafi, Devers at third base and scooped that out of the dirt was very special playoff thought under pressure. Yeah. I mean, we don't know how long to get from for defensively. You know, he's a guy that came up as a catcher. Obviously, was there a little bit as a rookie it with the Cubs and since then, it's like ninety 9.5% of the time he's played left field so from you know, it's going to be maybe at times an adventure, but the point is to get his back in the lineup, we've seen with the Red Sox, first baseman have done all kinds of leave the season. Like you said, dalbec has been, you know, authors, And a couple hot weeks here, and they're pretty much in the slump All Year, Danny Santana and marwin Gonzalez. The guys, they try it out there have been uh, you know, abysmal as well. We've seen Frankie Cordero, come up and have a little success here and there and the last couple of weeks, but the Red Sox needed to fill, you know, they can't have a dead spot in their line-up every night. And so they they definitely feel that they come August 15th or wage war was back. I will no longer be an issue. Yeah, I'm just curious to see how Alex Cora who I think has always been very underrated for the way he manipulates his line up and and Thursday. It's the puzzle pieces in to make it a productive off, certainly a productive offense of line up and suddenly he I don't think he gets enough credit for his knowledge of the game and where to position people and put guys, in position on the field to do the best job, they can defensively and that and that really helps their pictures down. Yeah, we saw that in 2018, you know, when they were at their best, you know, on a daily basis it was you know, either holster Nunez a second either Pearson Moreland at first, you know, a lot of them are very solid defensively. You know, you look at a guy like Mitch Moreland, who is a gold glove candidate all the time. Steve Pearce was solid over there. He mix and match. And and you know the laundry for the Red Sox gave TJ Hernandez. So they could put in a defensive spot for me is going to be one of the best defenders on the field. So I think they're happy with that at times. Like I said, we don't know what's going to happen at first base before, but it's it's a risk. They're willing to take off the robe was roblez made his debut Sunday night at Tampa Bay. He's the right-hander they got at the deadline from twins for right-hander, Alex, sure. Who went to MIT backed off soda, minor-league picture, and then they also got left, handed picture, Austin, Davis from the Pirates. What do you think those two guys can contribute? I think, you know, if you're looking at from a Red Sox perspective, they're looking for interesting arms that weren't going to cost you much. I'm sure they had talks with the Cubs about Craig, Kimbrel. But you saw, what they had to give up Nick Madrigal, who was just on a second, baseman already was sitting like 3:20 and, you know, eighty five major league games and he's out for the rest of this year. But there's a guy who's under control forever as track record in Major League success. I mean, trying to think the Red Sox would have to give up, you know, for a guy like camera, it's a price. They weren't willing to pay so and Alex sheriff is a guy who's had success this year with a kind of a fringe Prospect and then Michael Chavis who obviously was just a change of scenery candidate. At this point of the struggles in the last two years, the Red Sox didn't give up anything that they thought would meaningfully fit into their plans for the next few years. And and exchange got, you know, two arms that are not the same thing, flashes arms out in the trade market. The two guys that they think. Okay, we can do something with the stuff or we can put them in position to succeed. You know. Robles has been around for a while. I think he has like six or seven Big League Seasons with a few different teams birth. Some success in Anaheim and is on, you know, is a rental guy in Davis, who is controlled for a few more years. They needed a lefty because, you know, they felt like with Josh Taylor and dogs and they didn't have enough left-handed depth, not the flashiest moves, obviously schwarber was the big move, but those are the types of guys that their rentals, they don't cost you much, you bring them into the bullpen see what they could do. It's just another of, you know the the the real cost is they lost Brandon Workman, who was pitching morals. So you know it's not it's not a big risk but there's potential payoffs went, you know, you get the red socks off other team like getting these guys in their Labs. Say okay, we have the video on this guy, we think that if we, you know, increase his change after usage, drop his arm and a little bit, then he'll become a stud for us in the bullpen, every team that smarter than the rest in that regard. And so, you know, we'll see if the Red Sox could do with these two, what's really important for us? I think too high and Bloom and Red Sox ownership, Sam Kennedy, and John Henry at all. That they didn't have to disrupt what they were trying to do with the farm system. That is rebuild it, right? I mean, build up the stock, don't dip into it just to make some rental moves here at the trade deadline in 2021 and make sure everything the key pieces are in place right to move forward and they accomplish that and they're still in great position to make some type of run off last two months, and then, you know, let the cards fall where they may and October. But but the important part of this is that they didn't disrupt the true. You know, Blue Chip prospects in their system that they're building a right? And although Ramirez who was the twenty year old picture that they gave up for schwarberg?

And so I think, you know, you can give up a twenty-year-old that low, a was three or four steps before coming in the majors feel dead, A better about that than, you know, giving up a tent or house. Obviously, you're giving up a, you know, even a Brian model who's injured, either one of those moves. I think we both know.
